My name is Chris and welcome to my cozy hell-hole and sanity keeper I call my tumblr

TIme for some What If? science!

So the other day me and my friend Josh were messing around over some physics homework and I accidentally inverted the speed of light in a calculation and was wondering why it was taking so long for a wave to travel just a few meters.

Any way that caused us to start talking about what would happen if the speed of light in the universe just suddenly inverted. I decided that if this happened then because it would take so long for light to get to our eyes from sources then the flow of observed time would also invert itself. This would directly link the flow of time that we experience, the fourth dimension, to the speed of light so that time would be just a bi product of moving waves.

We also decided that if that inversion were to happen right now, assuming we didnt all die immediately, the entire universe would come to an imediate stop and then slowly adjust to this new speed until everything was running just as it was before. We would never notice this change because in our frame of reference, that slow adjustment would not be happening because we also would be adusting with the universe, so we would never know the flip happened or observe any change in the universe. The speed of light would always seem to be 3e8 m/s.

Saying that we could postulate even further to say that this is always happening and that the speed of light is continuously changing or even oscillating back and forth from a maximum to a minimum value.

I dont know but I think that would be cool.

I hate when im around someone I really like and they come close and I can smell them and they smell really good and then I cant focus on anything else and just fall into despair because I wont ever have the balls to do anything about it.

The spelling on this post kills me too. But its wisdom more than makes up for it.

My Latin professor apparently changed her mind about this sentence partway through but didn’t actually fix it, so now the seas are terrified by the Romans.

Well if you listen to Caligula its true
